ROXANNE

After all that time following her, Valerie and I finally got to meet Tammy. Kevin too, naturally. It was Valerie who arranged our meeting, by taking Kevin’s steak. She can be a crafty one, that Valerie. Even though it was clear she disliked Kevin, you knew what she was thinking. “Maybe he’ll make steak again.”

“So are you camping in a tent or do you have a van?” she asked me.

“Teardrop camper,” I said.
